GREEN BAY - There is word coming out of Green Bay that Packers superstar tight end Jermichael Finley will undergo armpit surgery late this evening.
J just gave me the consent Ive been waiting 5 years for, TONIGHT I get to wax his arm pits. YESSSSSSSS. Im stoked.
This should come as a surprise to most Packer fans, as neither Mike McCarthy or the post-game injury report eluded to any need for Finley's dermal surgery. Packer fans can only hope that the procedure goes well and that Finley returns to form on Sunday. According to a source, he'll be ready to go.
He'll be ready to go. This is something Jermichael has been meaning to do for awhile. It should help to promote a little less air resistance on some of his shorter routes.
With the seemingly endless injury list, the Packers cannot afford to lose yet another key starter on any side of the ball. If history is any indicator Finley should be okay. Says a physician familiar with the procedure:
Although often messy and painful, this procedure is minimally invasive. Most patients tend to recover within 24 hours, although their reputation may never be the same.
We will keep you updated as we get further details on Finley's condition.
